Job 36: The First Teacher
"Speak to the Earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?"
The LORD created all things (see By Him Were All Things Created). Within the Creation are the natural laws that the LORD "taught" all things. Those teachings are in fact the basis of genuine scientific research of the highest quality (although many scientists still lack the honesty or competence to realize or admit it; see The Only Place That Denies God's Existence).

Elihu was a wise young friend of Job who recognized the teachings of the LORD (see Elihu's Answer, The Postponement Of Death, The Spirit Of Life and What Did The LORD Teach About How To Pray?). Elihu was a good student and teacher of the LORD: "I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
